It sounds to me like a case of the wind knots, these knots aren't necessarily caused from wind, but more in terms of trying to put too much power in your cast. Try to keep the acceleration of the rod gradual applying the main "pop" to the cast right before you stop the fore and back cast motion, and also try stopping your back cast closer to the 12 o'clock position and not the 2.

Hope this helps...
